The centre, which is to cost US$2 million, will specialise in business disputes, said Lim Chhiv Ho, president of Attwood Import and Export Co. The Asian Development Bank has pledged $500,000 to the centre, and employee training will take place in Singapore, said Mao Thora, secretary of state at the Ministry of Commerce. About 50 to 60 people will be trained, he said, adding that military and police officers will be barred.
